The project foresees the replacement of the Kosovo B power plant’s electrostatic precipitator (a filtration device that removes fine particles like dust and smoke), KEK said in a Facebook post.

After the completion of the project, the Kosovo B power plant will operate in line with EU standards by 2021, the corporation said, adding that the EU office in Kosovo is in the final phase of project preparation, SeeNews reported on Monday.
